OUR APPROACH

We are experts in supply chain sustainability, helping organizations in the food and agriculture sector develop strategies and implement changes with positive outcomes for people and the environment. We bring sustainability to the field-level and help our clients measure and communicate results.

We leverage our on-farm insights, project management skills, supply chain expertise, network and experience with agricultural sustainability to develop these projects. Ongoing work for clients includes:

  • Developing and executing a global sustainable sourcing program for a spice retailer
  • Reducing pesticide-related risks by helping apple growers in the Midwest adopt advanced integrated pest management practices
  • Supporting multi-stakeholder efforts to develop a pest management metric to measure and communicate changes in pesticide-related risk
  • Learn more about our Projects and Initiatives

Every project we do is unique and customized to our client’s needs, but they all start with one thing in common: the goal to create high-impact and sustainable outcomes.

First, we Analyze to really understand our clients’ needs and we map the risks and opportunities in the supply chain. Then we Design by identifying key opportunities, setting goals and making a roadmap. The Do phase is essential: implementing changes, while balancing the needs of all stakeholders. Tracking progress and measuring results helps our clients communicate the impacts. We value the importance of our clients being able to be open and transparent to stakeholders about the impact of the changes they have implemented.
